Put it back together as one big drive and repartition it again.
Or do you already have data written on the drives?

I think partition magic is capable of resizing the drives.

Yep, that'd do the trick.

partition magic costs money!! which is never fun

download ubuntu linux... burn the image.. and start from disc... it'll let you run the operating system from the disc... and while doing that, start up gparted from ubuntu and change ur partitions as need be
